In recent weeks, President Trump has challenged U.S. foreign policy orthodoxy.
Last week he approved firing 59 cruise missiles at a Syrian airfield that the White House said had been used to launch a poison gas attack on a rebel-held village. It was the first intentional U.S. attack on a Syrian government site in the six-year civil war.
And on Thursday, the Air Force dropped its most powerful conventional bomb, an 11-ton behemoth, on a cave-and-tunnel complex that was being used by the Islamics in eastern Afghanistan.
It was the first time the Massive Ordnance Air Blast, nicknamed the Mother of All Bombs, was detonated in combat. The huge explosion, which shook the earth for miles around, killed scores of Islamics.
Asked if use of the massive munition was meant as a warning to North Korea, the President said, “I don’t know if this sends a message. It doesn’t make any difference if it does or not.” He went on to say, “North Korea is a problem. The problem will be taken care of.”
None of that is apparently good enough for the LA Times.
